Live mobile polling has really become an interesting way to enhance presentations. According to Jodi Bresina, Internet Director at ShoeMall, the audience comes alive when they are given the opportunity to participate in presentations via the mobile channel.
“I love the real time interaction of live mobile polling,” Bresina said. “I have been an audience member in a handful of presentations recently. Live polling is very engaging. It is interesting to see whether your opinion is the same or different from your peers and the rest of the audience.”
ShoeMall used live mobile polling during its presentation at Internet Retailer’s IRCE event in June, and noted that both engagement and interest increased during the session. In addition, ShoeMall was pleased to see that live mobile polling gave audience members an easy way to participate with presenters, and provided presenters with a glimpse of the audience make up.
“Mobile polling is a really easy way to keep your audience interested in your topic,” Bresina added.”It also allowed us to get an understanding of what our audience make-up consisted of – large or small retailers. A lot of times when you ask a question during a presentation, audience members do not want to raise their hand and participate. The mobile polling allows everyone to participate and share their opinions.”
Knotice provided live mobile polling services to Shop.org’s Annual Summit last September. Check out this video (it was filmed in the back of a large hall):
